Iowa Volunteer Disaster Medical Assistance Team
Iowa DMAT is currently recruiting Respiratory Care Practitioners due to several openings on the team. Not only do RTs provide routine respiratory therapy, they are often drawn upon to perform logistical and administrative functions and are an integral part of the disaster response team.

DMAT RTs were deployed to the Cedar Rapids flood event in 2008. Iowa DMAT RTs have also been drawn upon to deploy to Florida and Louisiana hurricanes as part of state mutual aid medical teams.

DMAT members are asked to virtually attend one meeting per quarter and in person one meeting per year. Meetings are held in all regions of the state. Members are required to register on the Iowa emergency volunteer database:  i-Serv prior to team employment. Members must complete basic trainings listed below, most of which is available online.
